Leiter on USD Law School recent hires
By Tom Smith

Brian has this informed review of our recent successes in hiring at USD law school. I, of course, agree that we are a school with a lot of momentum in the right direction. I mean the correct direction. Upward. You know what I mean.

Brian's famous (and notorious) efforts to review and rank law schools and philosophy departments are a boon to schools that want to rise in quality rather than merely rest on laurels. It just goes to show you how important competition is in the marketplace.

I am happy to be among Brian's favorite "right wing kooks." He in turn is my favorite Red. If things ever really get out of hand, Brian, you're welcome in my bunker.
